Ninth Judicial District Court

Tribunal del Noveno Distrito Judicial

English Español

Will I be compensated for jury duty?

The Court is authorized by New Mexico State statute to pay you $6.75 per hour.  In addition, round trip mileage from your home to the courthouse will be paid at $0.46 a mile. Payment is computed based upon the information you provide on the juror qualification form and your mailing zip code. Checks will be mailed to your home address.  Your payment cannot be split between hourly and mileage reimbursement. You will need to verify with your employer regarding their internal jury service and payment policy. Employers are not required by law to reimburse employees for jury service. On average, reimbursement payments take 6 weeks to process.  If payment is not received within 10 weeks of Jury Service, please contact the Jury Division at 575-742-7524 in CURRY COUNTY, and 575-359-6926 in ROOSEVELT COUNTY.
